I can hear the mournful whine of R2-D2 now...

Baker may have found fame thanks to being the actor inside R2-D2, but his filmography includes many other notable credits such as Time Bandits, Flash Gordon, The Goonies, Amadeus, The Elephant Man, Mona Lisa, and Labyrinth.

In what universe did he appear in The Goonies?

It looks like he was on a show called The Goodies.

Always loved Time Bandits. "So this is what an invisible barrier looks like!"

Dang! All it takes is one person making a mistake (Goodies/Goonies) and the internet runs with it forever.

A big eraser is needed.

He'll be replaced by a robot, like the rest of us will.

A sad day indeed. I love Star Wars, and am a huge fan of The Time Bandits too. I once got Kenny Baker's autograph at a comic/sci-fi convention I went to with my Dad.

I meet him once on Sandown pier, I sold him some tickets to a show.

I didn't know he was there to start with as it was an old style ticket window and the counter was higher than him.

He died 5 months after Anthony John "Tony" Dyson (April 13, 1947 – March 4, 2016), the British special-effects designer best-known for building the R2-D2 droid model.
